Re: Daily Bed Rest Check-In 8/31/11 (Wed.)

  • Any bad habits? I love Coffee way to much. I was threatened once by my Dr with a mammogram because I had caffinee deposits in my boobs!

    Which season is your favorite? Fall. I am so excited to have my little man during such a great season.

    Where/What are you most excited to do with your LO when they arrive? I can't wait to take little man to his 1st Farmers market. I love the farmers market. YAY!

     Have you made freezer meals? Do you feel like sharing a freezer meal recipe? I made a few. The easiest to do while on bedrest is crustless chicken pot pie. You can probably but store bought crust if you prefer it. I used a small crockpot and cooked up a chicken breast, 1 can of cream of chicken soup, 1 can of corn with the corn juice included, a bag of frozen broccoli & califlower, 1/2 cup of water and cook till the chicken breast can be shredded. I think it was about 7 hours on Low. I also added parsely, salt and pepper.

    I only physically stood to put the ingredients in the crockpot and turn it on, then to take it out. :) So easy.

     

    Updates? Not really. I'll be off bedrest on Friday though anyone want to take over for Monday?

  • Hi Holly,

  • Any bad habits?

    -I have a horrible sweet tooth. And trying to figure out what "modified" bed rest means for me. I am tying not to do too much, but it is hard to find that balance. My OB told me just to take it easy and do what I feel like, but rest as much as possible. 

    Which season is your favorite?

    -I love winter. In Texas it is hot most of the year, so winter is such a nice change 

    Where/What are you most excited to do with your LO when they arrive?

    -Just being a mom. Getting to hold him, feed him, love on him, etc 

     Have you made freezer meals? Do you feel like sharing a freezer meal recipe?

    -Haven't made anything yet, but plan on browning up a couple pounds of ground turkey for stuff like spaghetti, tacos, hamburger helper. Will probably make a few other things, but that is really it.  

     

    Updates?

    -Getting out of the house today to go to a breast feeding class. It is a 3 hour class and I am not sure that I am going to make it through the whole class, but it gets me out for a little while at least.

  • Any bad habits?  I guess my "bad habit" would be spending way too much money at Starbucks!  Oh, but how I love my Iced Soy Vanilla Chai!  Great, now I want one!

    Which season is your favorite?  Hands down, no contest - FALL!  I love everything about it except how short it is.  Summer seems to end later and later and Winter starts earlier and earlier.  

    Where/What are you most excited to do with your LO when they arrive?  I think just the fact that there are two babies coming is the most exciting thing for me.  I am looking forward to nursing again (I'm sure I'll eat those words in a few weeks) and I am REALLY looking forward to making baby food again!  Had so much fun last time.

    Have you made freezer meals? Do you feel like sharing a freezer meal recipe?  This is actually one of my goals for this week.  I made Sloppy Joe's on Monday and put 1/2 of it in the freezer in small, individual portions.  I am also making a chicken dish in the crock pot and a huge batch of chili.  Next week I hope to make a few more, all crock pot or one pot dishes.  No real recipe, just this and that.

    Updates? No major updates.  My doctor appt was canceled this week due to flooding so I went to the hospital for my CL check.  It shortened again (little) and is at 2.2 right now.  Excited for Friday... 32 weeks and for Tuesday... another growth u/s.

    Non-pregnancy update: Another goal this week is to finish gift bags for DS.  I bought 4 reusable bags and will be filling each with small toys, craft items, and snacks.  I'm having a c-section, so I have a bag for each day I will be in the hospital.  I started this before MBR, so I will need DH to pick up the rest of the toys.  He bought the snacks this week, so we just need a few more things.  I am going to wrap all of the toys as well.  These will be gifts from "the babies!"  I can't wait!  I hope it makes DS smile!

  • Any bad habits? I would have to say biting my nails - I've done it since I was a kid and don't see that I'll stop anytime soon

    Which season is your favorite? it would be Fall

    Where/What are you most excited to do with your LO when they arrive? - I can't wait until I can hold them - one at a time since I can't hold three babies at once

     Have you made freezer meals? Do you feel like sharing a freezer meal recipe? - No, I do love to cook meals and bake though

     

    Updates? No updates today

    Adalynn, Brynn and Elena born October 13th, 2011! They were our triplet surprise and everyday is a blessing. Brynn Victoria was born 3lbs 7oz 16", Adalynn Louise born 3lbs 6oz 16 3/4" and Elena Marie born 3lbs 10oz.
  • I have a bad habit now of not eating right.  I forget honestly since im on BR.

    I love love love fall.  I'm so looking forward to it!  It's made me really happy in spite of everything else knowing that it's coming soon!

    I can't wait to hold her on my chest and rub her head and just enjoy the way she feels on the outside.  I'm definitely looking forward to some snuggle time.  I think I could do it for hours. 

    No freezer meals here.  I'm not supposed to be cooking anyway but DH won't eat "used" food.  He's weird.  He doesn't like leftovers and is suspicious of anything that's been in the fridge for more than 3 days (even not leftovers).  So there's no point wasting time making freezer meals.  I'll be glad to cook again anyway so I don't think that will be a problem.
